IT’S TIME TO MAKE A MOVIE! Campers will create a short film with the support of film-loving peers and the guidance of a professional film instructor. Whether it’s a camper’s first or fiftieth time making a movie, our staff will meet campers at their individual skill level and encourage their growth. We believe there is always something new to learn, especially in the creative world of visual storytelling! Each camp session also includes watching films, participating in fun team-building games, scavenger hunts, and quick film challenges.

 

Working in small groups equipped with a camera, campers will:

  • pitch and storyboard ideas
  • learn how to compose the best shots
  • collaborate as part of a film crew
  • enhance problem-solving and critical thinking skills
  • perform on camera
  • receive peer and instructor feedback
  • edit with Adobe Premiere Pro CC
  • screen work at the JBFC Theater

 

Soft Skills:

  • Collaboration
  • Peer and instructor feedback
  • Problem solving
  • Critical thinking

 

Technical Skills:

  • Introduction to film and language
  • Effective storytelling fundamentals
  • Analyzing film shots
  • Camera and editing techniques
